assault on liberty. not because that's true, but because they want to ginn up fear. >> president obama ready to wage a political battle for his gun proposals against the gun lobby. joining me now, eric pratt. mr. pratt, thank you very much for being with us. >> thank you for having me. >> your response to the president and his proposals, are there things that he proposed that you could support, perhaps tightening the rules on background checks? >> well, we don't think any of the things he's proposing would have stopped what happened in connecticut, wouldn't have stopped adam lanza from killing a victim and stealing those firearms to commit such an atrocity. if there is an area of agreement we have with the president, he quoted from the declaration of independence telling all men are endowed by their creator for inalienable rights. that's an interesting concept, whether it's the right to vote, right to sit behind a microphone or the right to choose how i'm going to protect myself, all those rights cannot be infringed. >> they can, because the first amendment is infringed, i have to obey
